Berliner 100-micron Filter Bags (2 large and 2 small)
Best reef filter money can buy
I have been running this sump for two years on a mixed reef heavy bio load 72 gallon bow-front, and I am super satisfied with the results. Impressive water quality utilizing the full Berlin method. Runs super quite, absolutely crystal clear water in the display tank (almost impossible to see any micro bubbles) . My system runs a huge reef octopus skimmer, reef octopus bio pellet reactor, coralife turbo twist uv sterilizer, and a massive return pump.. All equipment fits in the sump. The best part is it comes with two chemical media reactors . You can use gfo and or carbon to get even better water parameters. Although these reactors get completely submerged it doesn't effect the chemical filtration given the proper flow rate . I use pura phoslock gfo along with the biopellets and to maintain ultra low nutrient system. If you're new to the hobby and or just looking to upgrade your current filtration, I highly recommend everyone to invest In the best sump on the market "berliner wd-125". Save yourself time and money of buying a different unit and changing your mind after to upgrade. Take it from me I started off with a canister, however now that I have seen .first hand how good the berliner wd-125 is I wouldn't have it any other way Doctor foster and smith always have the best prices for all your pet needs so I definitely recommend purchasing from them.

This is the most awesome filter I have seen to date. Great design and engineering. I have a 110 gallon tank in my living room and noise was always a problem with my old filter. I can't even hear this one. Would highly recommend.

Great sump Great price
I just received this sump last week. It works great. I think it is the best sump that I have ever had. I'm running an 1500 overflow with a 6000 quiet one return pump. I have it setup with mineral mud and and crushed coral. I'm running phis ban in the media containers.My tank changed overnight water looks better then it ever has thanks to the socks polishing the water so well. I would buy this again and will in the future.

New filter system
Well it arrived broken but Drsfostersmith.com replaced it immediately and even sent me a UPS label to return the broken one. Just got the filter system installed. Seems to be a great system. I only have a single outlet on my tank. So I used the other intake port for my heater. I love that the sump has sealed compartments, really cuts down on the evaporation and salt creep inside the stand. The two fluidized beds are great as well. I have a dual media reactor to run carbon and GFO. Hopefully I can eliminate it all together.
